"Annwyn Avalon's enchanted book dares to peer deep into the waters – the mirror betwixt the worlds – revealing unto the reader a rich trove of spirits, ancient deities, eldritch beings, stories and lore. Deeply practical too; Water Witchcraft: Magic & Lore from the Celtic Tradition reveals also tools, substances, rites, charms and spells, both traditional and innovative, enabling the reader to fully explore, connect with and employ water in all its forms as a potent vehicle for power and transformation." --Gemma Gary, author of Wisht Waters: Aqueous Magica and the Cult of Holy Wells, Traditional Witchcraft: A Cornish Book of Ways, and other books of magic and witchcraft
An accessible in-depth guide to Celtic water lore, including spells, rituals, water spirits, and merfolk
Let Annwyn Avalon, a practicing water witch herself, take you into the world of water magic. The water magic and lore in this book focuses on the Celtic tradition, but draws on other water magic traditions as well, and features rainwater, as well as lakes, rivers, oceans, canals, swamps, and other watery locations, together with the folk and magical customs that have been and are still practiced at these places. The book teaches the reader how to set up a water altar at home, how to connect with water spirits, and how to gather or create water witch tools. Readers are encouraged to visit local water sites but will also find an abundance of material to perform at home. Included are practical examples, visualizations, and exercises so any reader can start to take up spell work and establish their spiritual connection to water.
